Tamar Braxton Defends Julianne Hough [VIDEO]

Tamar Braxton recently sat down with VH1′s “The Big Morning Buzz” and talked about Julianne Hough’s infamous ‘Orange Is The New Black’ blackface costume. - See more at: http://bossip.com/859407/racist-or-nah-tamar-braxton-defends-julianne-houghs-blackface-halloween-costume-she-looks-like-me/#sthash.VWQ8Xh7G.dpuf
Tamar Braxton recently went on a VH-1 show and responded to Julianne Hough's halloweeen costume.  You can watch what she said in the VH-1 video or read the Bossip text below:
Sidebar: It's comments like these that put us back another 50 years and gives permission for other people to make bad choices like this. I love Tamar's fun quick responses on her reality show and on 'The Real' but on serious issues like this, not funny. People look for any opportunity to support black face or any other racist action. When Whoopi Goldberg did it decades ago I felt the same way. Stop already. It seems that they always find a way to ask the one black person who is like what's the big deal? Well, it is a big deal and the reason it is so offensive is because it is a caricature of negative stereotypes of African-Americans that have been used to justify the dehumanization of black people since we were brought to America and that was in chains by the way. These caricatures were displayed in minstrel shows which were a major form of entertainment during the late 19th century through the early mid 20th century.  In these shows black people were not called in to tell a joke or two we were the joke.  Minstrels spoke in broken English using distinctively "black" dialect and sang songs about Jim Crow and celebrated the marginalization of being a "darkey."  Therefore, when African-descended people see in blackface, we do not think it just a joke. When we see individuals in blackface, we have an immediate visceral reaction or we should have one because it is making light of a time when our dark skin, our full lips, our tightly coiled hair, our large eyes-were the joke. It still is the joke by the way.  Julianne Hough was not paying homage to a character named Crazy Eyes, puh-lease. I am always disappointed when I see our people make light of our past and especially on TV. Like, really, how is that possible? I wonder does Tamar think the white kids who dressed up in blackface as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman on Halloween was no big deal either. One blackface leads to another blackface. They all are offensive and NO Halloween is not an excuse.
